Citizen Staff Writer



University of Arizona football signee Ryan Milus tied a 31-year-old state record in the boys 100 meters on Wednesday in a preliminary heat on Day 1 of the Class 5A Division I track championship at Chandler High School

Milus, a senior at Chandler Hamilton who will play cornerback for the Wildcats, finished in 10.33 seconds, the sixth fastest high school time in the country this year, according to the track and field Web site Dyestat.com.

He tied the record set in 1978 by El Mirage Dysart High School sprinter LaNoris Marshall.

The championship heats for most events, including the 100 meters, are Saturday at Chandler High School.

In the five events that crowned state champions Wednesday, the best southern Arizona result was by Sierra Vista Buena’s Jeremy Tuttle, whose discus toss of 169 feet, 7 inches was good for second place.

Class 4A Division I and II

Sabino’s Alex Evans won 4A-I state championships in the boys 1,600 meters (4:19.61) and the 800 meters (1:54.72) at Mesa Community College, giving his team 20 points in the meet’s first of two days.

Daniel McIver’s high jump of 6-feet, 6-inches was good for the 4A-II title for the Catalina senior.

In girls competition, Canyon del Oro senior hurdler Kala Stepter posted the top preliminary times in the 100- and 300-meter hurdles.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
